The Best Kilimanjaro Tour Operator

Team Kilimanjaro regularly coordinates and leads climbs ranging from self-supported climbs for endurance athletes through to ascents by multiple quadriplegic climbers.

Great climb of Kilimanjaro and wonderful organisation

My wife and I had the pleasure of climbing mt. Kilimanjaro with Frank John from Team Kilimanjaro as our chief guide. We did the 9-day TK Lemosho route with a night at the crater camp at 5.729m, using the Excel Series offered by Team Kilimanjaro.

The entire climb as well as the pre-climb communication and the aftercare were simply wonderful. Ahead of our climb David gave us all the information we could wish for and during the climb Frank ensured a safe and enjoyable trek. The full team of guides, cook (also known as the stomach engineer) and porters worked together very well to support our climb and give us the best chance of summiting as planned.

We would definitely recommend climbing with Team Kilimanjaro and would also recommend the TK Lemosho route. This route is different from the traditional Lemosho route: it takes a more quite route and uses the small 'School hut' as the base camp for the summit attempt, rather than the massive and overly crowded Barafu camp (which we passed through on our way back down from the summit).

Our night at the crater camp was also worth recommending, although it was incredibly cold. It allowed us to do a hike in the crater to the Ash Pit where you can see the volcanic fumes rise, and it meant we did a day-time summit assault (getting up at 4am rather than mid-night) which is much more quiet at Uhuru Peak and leaves you a lot of time to take pictures without other climbers impatiently waiting for you to finish.

All in all: do climb with Team Kilimanjaro. We have seen many other companies on the mountain and spoken to many other climbers, the other companies simply did not offer the same quality gear, support or routes.

Only Positive Things To Say - Amazing Experience Overall

My five friends and I began our 6-day trek on June 30, 2018 via the Machame route and all reached our goal of making it to Uhuru Peak (along with making it safely back down the mountain), which we owe entirely to this team. Overall, the experience was amazing, and although it is difficult to summarize into words, what I can say is I have the utmost respect and gratitude for Team Kilimanjaro for helping me and my friends through this incredible journey.

More specifically, our lead guide, Julius Mollel, and his team exceeded our expectations with their attentiveness, encouragement and overall enthusiasm during the hike. I always felt well cared for, informed and safe with them every step of the way. They were even nice enough to (miraculously) gather the ingredients to bake a cake for my friend after we briefly mentioned it was his birthday while we were hiking. Truly showed how much they care! If you have the opportunity to climb with Julius and his team, take it. You will definitely enjoy the time spent with them.

Overall, I would highly recommend using Team Kilimanjaro if you are thinking of tackling this summit.

Best Hiking Experience - Phenomenal Guide and Team

Myself along with five friends traveled to Tanzania from the US at the end of June for our 6 day trek on the Machame Route to Uhuru Peak. Our expectations were exceeded from the very beginning. Our guide, Julius Mollel was amazing in every way. He was very knowledgeable about the mountain, supported our team 100%, went out of his way to make our group feel a part of the Team Kilimanjaro crew, and was always positive.

I highly recommend hiking Mt. Kilimanjaro through this organization and if you have the opportunity to hike with Julius, definitely take advantage of that opportunity. You will not be disappointed!

Thanks to our representative, Bianca, I felt well prepared for the trek from what to pack and what to expect. She was incredibly patient with all the questions I sent her and was timely in her responses. Team Kilimanjaro was very professional and constantly went the extra mile.

Recent Climb and Safari

Just got back to Colorado June 2018, just wanted to give a well deserved great review. We went with my wife and 13yo son. Kilimanjaro and 5 day safari, great experience on both. Always, had someone waiting in transit times and didn't seem like any hiccups with supplies and expertise. Did the 6 day Rongai route and what an experience. We are not very experienced climbers and learned lots and felt safe climbing with our son. Would recommend the African Tulip (Arusha), Grumetti Eco Lodge as places that were the nicest places for our pampered tastes. Need to have some more juice options on climb for kids but was fun sharing my sons first cup of coffee with him! Special thanks to Nick, Guido, Gerald, Emmanuel(s), Mohammed, Evance, Habib, Hashim, Godbless, Willey, and all the rest of you guys, great time for our family! Dr. Groth

St David's Day Summit

The Trek was fabulously well coordinated. I felt very prepared beforehand due to regular answers to my plethora of questions to the Team.
The trek itself was incredible, no vocab to describe, only pictures can do it justice. The stand on top of the world at sunrise, looking down / across at huge glaziers and volcanic craters was simply awesome.
A special note re guides, Simon and Felix, not only was their professionalism of the absolute highest standard so was their enthusiasm and encouragement. Their planning to allow me to achieve this incredible feat was brilliant, pace, knowledge, food, drinks, encouragement, tips etc etc. Superb.
I later squeezed in a short safari and a morning with the tribesman, completely different experiences but again organisationally great and experience superb. Coordinated by guides Karim and Gaspar, who again were 1st class with their knowledge and professionalism.
